Dean Cain was Super at Wizard World

Everyone knows about my interest in Aquaman.  He is clearly the most under-appreciated superhero of all time.  He never got a movie.  The best he got was a couple of episodes on tv's Smallville, where he was poorly written.
Aquaman needs a PR firm.  Aquaman needs some Hollywood types to back him for a bit and he would rise to the top.
He needs someone like Dean Cain.  Cain played Superman (opposite Terri Hatcher) in tv's Lois and Clark.  Cain became a star and has worked steadily ever since.
I resisted the urge to talk Aquaman to Cain when I met him at Wizard World.  We talked a bit about Stars and Stripes, his latest tv appearance.  I did not feel the need to drag Cain into my Aquaman quandary.  I know, most of the readers of this are probably wishing I wouldn't keep dragging them into my Aquaman quandary either.
For his part, Cain was very nice.  He made sure to get everyone's name and shake their hands.  On second thought, maybe I should have asked for his help with Aquaman.
